Are we alone?

Three astronauts go to space in search of a planet that probably has water—one of the basic elements for humanity to survive. Do they find it? What else do they find? They encounter something—something strange—beyond their wildest imaginations, and their mission-to-explore becomes a mission-to-survive.

They experience something that makes them question their beliefs. All the things they had taken for granted, everything they had seen and learned, don’t seem to apply any longer.

Something happens along the way that makes them yearn to come back to Earth. After all, home is where the heart is.

This is not just another science fiction. Rather, it will make you question your own beliefs—may they be scientific, religious, political, or something else.

In the first installment of The Galaxy Series, find out about the strange world they discover.  

Beyond the Milky Way by Aithal (The Galaxy Series, #1)

Beyond The Milky Way (The Galaxy Series #1)It’s an age-old question, one that seems both improbable and incomprehensible! Are we alone in the universe? Aithal brings one answer to the table in an intriguing and creative way that feels both entirely possible and kind of a relief to know that aliens do not have to be hostile, but are they always honest?

The Earth is dying, mankind has taken and taken and survival is almost impossible. Where else to turn than to neighboring planets? Three astronauts are sent on a mission to explore Mars for human viability, but from the start, the mission is in danger and NASA has lost contact. Where did the ship go? What of the brave souls aboard? They were the last hope for mankind to discover another planet to inhabitant in our galaxy, the Milky Way. Have we been too limited in our search? Beyond the Galaxy takes us to another galaxy where Earth has a twin, and its inhabitants are humanoid, far advanced and live in a world with no government. Discover what these aliens are keeping secret, what their world is like in a completely entertaining way that does NOT rely on violence and battles!

Aithal has done a wonderful job of creating a vision of our first encounter, as these three very human astronauts crash onto a world so very similar, yet different from Earth as they discover new truths of survival, secrets kept from them and attempt to find a way back through a portal to their own world! Looking for a non-violent and non-terrifying glorification of aliens? A quick read that doesn’t get caught up in too much scientific jargon, but brings out the humanity and flaws of all peoples and the hopes for peaceful coexistence. Low on heavy action but high on interaction, let your imagination spin out of this world and beyond!

  1. I personally think it's arrogant of us to assume we're the only intelligent life in the known universe

  2. We are not the only intelligent life. The other intelligent life is smarter, so they stay away and don't communicate with us. Thanks.

  3. What do you like to do when you're not reading or writing?

    1. Watch a cricket match (if there is one) or be on my computer (I am a tech geek).
